These painters wanted to go over to First Earth Farms where the owner had pumpkins growing out in the field and attractive displays of the fruit of their labors out and about the various spots on the farm. So this was what I decided to paint...and as I said, a beautiful day..there was only one drawback, actually two but the one that was most funny (or annoying to a couple of the other artists) was the chickens. They would NOT leave anyone alone. Forget the fact that the rooster constantly warned us that those chickens were HIS....(no offense guys)....the chickens themselves thought we were definitely there to entertain them..they jumped up on our easels and pecked at all our equipment and were generally pretty annoying...but it was all in good fun and we got a kick out of them in the end. Oh the joys of painting outside.
